What’s the big deal (Update)

Have continued to use this app since my initial review, have to say it’s growing on me & as such have awarded an additional 2 stars.
I like the favourites section & the ability to quickly access the last performed action on that particular contact.
The Birthday section is useful but I would like to see this change where other events (anniversaries) are also shown.

Usually quite clued up with tech, still fail to see the significance of this app and it’s justification for its high ranking. Doesn’t bring much in the way of extra functionality over the stock contacts app.

Developer Response ,

Hi, here's a handful of features that Cardhop offers over the stock Contacts app: 1) Search, add, edit, and interact with your contacts using natural language. 2) Interact with one-off phone numbers and email addresses not in your contacts list. 3) Powerful search and sorting using smart groups (when paired with the Mac version). 4) Customisable quick action buttons let you quickly perform actions on contacts. 5) View upcoming birthdays. 6) Customisable business card lets you share your info quickly and easily. 7) Dark and light modes. 8) Robust group management.

Some unfortunate problems...

There is plenty to recommend about Cardhop - slick UI, natural language parsing of the quality you would expect from the makers of Fantastical, good performance speed and lots of customisation options. However, there are some unfortunate problems. When paying money for a UI app that only adds a certain amount of functionality to the stock free app, you expect it to be bulletproof (after all, the point is supposed to be all about being a slicker experience). In about 20 minutes of use I encountered the following problems: (1) Cardhop insisted that my nephew was a business so vehemently that I had to go into the Apple contacts app, delete the contact, add it back in there and then return to Cardhop (which obviously made me question the point of having Cardhop). (2) I wanted to add my wife to my favourites in Cardhop, but when I did, the app forced me to have her work email address as the default contact option - I still can’t change this. (3) There were problems with app integration, such as stuttering and duplication with Airmail 3, and lack of support for messaging through Signal. I will continue to use Cardhop for a while as the ‘upcoming birthdays’ feature is really great and I have some faith that the developers will fix these errors, but this was a bit of a disappointing start to a very promising app.

Developer Response ,

Hi, (1) Sounds unusual. If you can reproduce this please contact support and we'll investigate. (2) This is working as expected for me. Again, we can discuss in support if you like. (3) This may be an Airmail issue, especially if it works as expected in Mail. Signal is not supported because they don't have a URL scheme we can use to integrate with (if you contact Signal they may be able to consider making integration available to other developers in future).

Best in class

This is one of those apps which is so solid, useful and feature-rich that it should absolutely be part of the system. By far the most useful contact manager I have used on iOS. More functional than built-in Contacts by an order of magnitude.

A few little interface annoyances, like the tiny search bar ✖️ button being the only way out of search view (why not an edge swipe?) and the subtleness of the indicator that group filtering is being applied, keep it from being perfect.

Thanks for the review and feedback.
